    I put some brown african geese in the bator but I'm not sure how long they take until they hatch. When should I stop turning them? Also, I've noticed candling pictures and some are so clear and bright. I use a mini meg light. It works but I'm wondering what everyone else uses that seem so much brighter...

    This is from the stickys at the top of the page. Personally, I use a coffee can with a 100wt. light bulb in the bottom of it then a hole cut in the plastic lid that is just the right size to hold an egg against. Good luck with you goose eggs! I hear that they are the most difficult.
